We have accepted the fact that a career change is going to be inevitable (spelling ???) , but was just wondering ?? Any comments ?

Interesting topic. Don't know of anyone needing them, but did a search and came up with this:

I suppose body guards will always be in demand, but don't know if it is a booming industry in NZ

Sorry, I know of First Security in Auckland and Wellington but everyone gets employed as a security guard before progressing through the ranks and its minimum wage. I know they employed ex-SA policemen but it would cost us for my DH to work there (childcare costs would be higher than his salary)
Applied for work permit 14/04/2008
EOI submitted 20/04/2008
EOI selected 23/04/2008
ITA received 05/05/2008
Work permit approved 27/05/2008

LOL - Thanks Didi , will get the leather jockstrap out and start whipping away , get him in "shape" . Thanks all , so you reckon min wage as a sec guard , makes it for not so easy survival there ? What if i also worked . Wow , it would be a huge step back , but hey , we are all for having to make some sacrifices.

You could do well enough on a security officer salary if mum stay at home and look after the kids - childcare for young kids are expensive if you do not have PR. If have PR you can get govt assistance and go work...

I know a zim'er in our town who is a security guard - he earns $50 000 p/year (he works shifts with 4 days off every 2 weeks) - wife does not work, they have 3 kids and they live in my neighbourhood - they cope fine.... waiting for their PR...
